Kiwis rally late to win by 4 wickets published by ikhan on Tue, 01/14/2014 - 21:24 Wellington, New Zealand - New Zealand came from behind to win the 2nd and final Twenty20 International against the West Indies and take the series 2-0. It was a close match heading into the final stages, after the West Indies made 159/5 from their 20 overs. Denesh Ramdn top scored for the Windies with 55 not out while Andre Fletcher made 40. Both batsmen put on 70 runs for the 5th wicket. New Zealand lost early wickets in their chase. But just like Ramdin and Fletcher, the hosts found a good partnership when they needed one. Ross Taylor and Luke Ronchi combined in a 68 runs stand to put the Kiwis back on track. Taylor hit 39 but Ronchi was the star of the show, blazing an unbeatn 51 from 28 balls as New Zealand won by 4 wickets. The West Indies won the toss in the second and final Twenty20 International and elected t bat first against the Kiwis. There were a few changes around with Mitchell McClenaghan back in the squad in ...
Toss New Zealand chose to bowl v Sri Lanka Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details New Zealand's stand-in captain Kyle Mills chose to bowl in the first ODI against Sri Lanka, on a pitch with a layer of grass that promised movement for the seam bowlers. The threat of rain, which would put the team bowling second at a disadvantage - as they contend with a wet ball - may have influenced Mills' decision as well. Angelo Mathews, however, said he was happy to bat first, and expected the pitch to wear later in the evening. Tom Latham was slated to open alongside Anton Devcich for New Zealand, with Luke Ronchi also in the team, as wicketkeeper. Fast bowlers Adam Milne and Mitchell McClenaghan both made the XI, as did Corey Anderson, but James Neesham missed out due to a groin injury. He was expected to recover in time for Tuesday's second ODI. Neil Broome was also not considered for this match, as he has not yet arrived in the country. Dimuth Karunaratne will open for Sri Lanka, after three months of excellent fi ...

Mitchell McClenaghan gets copule of wickets (New Zealand tour of Bangladesh - 3rd ODI)
Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim decided to bat first after winning the toss against New Zealand in the second ODI in Mirpur. It was an interesting decision given the amount of dew that appears in the evening session, but it is likely that their comfort of defending a score tilted them to that direction. Bangladesh made one change, bringing in Shamsur Rahman in place of Anamul Haque. It's his ODI debut, having played three Twenty20s, and he became the 108th player for Bangladesh in this format. New Zealand made two changes: Tom Latham and Kyle Mills have replaced the injured Kane Williamson and left-arm pace bowler Mitchell McClenaghan.
Two changes for the BLACKCAPS from first ODI - Tom Latham in for Kane Williamson and Kyle Mills in for Mitchell McClenaghan.…
Team news Williamson's thumb injury is a big blow for New Zealand as he was their best batsman on the tour. Luke Ronchi is slated to replace Williamson, but will only reach Bangladesh before the final ODI, so the team management will have to pick between Colin Munro and Tom Latham in the second. Brendon McCullum has talked about rotating his bowlers, so Adam Milne or Kyle Mills could feature in place of Mitchell McClenaghan.

London: Mahendra Singh Dhoni was on Monday named captain of the ICC's Team of the Champions Trophy, which has four other Indians including stylish batsman Shikhar Dhawan. India won the last edition of the Champions Trophy after edging past England by five runs on Sunday. The ICC team has seven players from India and runners-up England. The team includes Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar Kumar - two Englishmen, Jonathan Trott and James Anderson, as well as Pakistan's Misbah-ul-Haq, Kumar Sangakkara from Sri Lanka, South Africa's Ryan McLaren and New Zealand's Mitchell McClenaghan. Joe Root of England was picked as the 12th man. Dhoni was named as the captain after he led his side to victory in the final, thus becoming the first captain in the history of the game to lift all three major ICC trophies - World Twenty20 2007, Cricket World Cup 2011 and Champions Trophy 2013. "While Dhoni got little opportunity to show his exploits with the bat, he marshalled his ...
County Cricket Round-Up - 28th June 2013 There were wins for Derbyshire, Surrey, Lancashire, Glamorgan, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire as the Friends Life t20 spluttered into life around the country amid the showers. The pick of the day’s matches was arguably Derbyshire’s tense two-wicket win at Headingley, with Jonathan Clare their batting star. Lancashire got their Friends Life t20 campaign off to a winning start by beating a Durham side fielding three debutants by nine runs at Chester-le-Street. Stephen Moore was the linchpin in their total of 165 for three and hit 75 off 58 balls. His opening partnership with Ashwell Prince (32 off 29 balls) was worth 77, while his stand with Simon Katich (43 not out off 25) yielded 68 off 43 balls. Durham then got off to a good start in their run chase courtesy of a 17-ball 33 from Yorkshire Bank 40 captain Mark Stoneman. However, only one other man passed 30 as Mitchell McClenaghan took three for 35 and there were a brace of wickets for Glen Chapple. Derby ...
Unfortuntately the weather was the winner at the Oval, play has been abandoned with two balls bowled, just enough time for Mitchell McClenaghan to take Lumb's wicket. The BLACKCAPS take the Twenty20 series 1-0. Rain not the an ideal finish to the series - but thanks so much for your support throughout the England tour, the team has really appreciated it!
Here, we select the best 11 players to comprise the 'Dream Team' of the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy based on the players' performances in their respective departments right through the competition. The Dream Team : MS Dhoni(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonathan Trott, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Joe Root , Ravindra Jadeja, Ryan McLaren, James Anderson, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Mitchell McClenaghan. Substitutes : Misbah-Ul-Haq, Lasith Malinga
Australia And New Zealand Suffer Edgbaston Washout Australia 243-8 (Voges 71, Bailey 55) v New Zealand 51-2 - match abandoned ICC Champions Trophy Group A, Edgbaston The ICC Champions Trophy 2013 Group A match between Australia and New Zealand at Edgbaston was abandoned due to rain with New Zealand on 51 for two chasing a target of 244. Mitchell McClenaghan took four wickets for the second match in a row to restrict Australia to 243 for eight but the match was in the balance when New Zealand lost two early wickets. The players left the field after 15 overs of the second innings and as the rain set in to leave the ground and outfield sodden, were unable to return. One point apiece keeps New Zealand at the top of the table but doesn't really help Australia, who may end up needing other teams in the group doing them a favour to reach the semi-finals. New Zealand kept the same team that beat Sri Lanka in the first match, whereas Xavier Doherty came in for Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell came in for the dropp ...
Disciplined New Zealand bowling restricted Australia to a total of 243/8 in their Champions Trophy Group A match at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Wednesday. The Australians, missing injured captain Michael Clarke and suspended opener David Warner for a game they must win to retain a chance of reaching the semi-finals, struggled on a slow wicket after winning the toss. Shane Watson was caught by wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi off fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan for five and Phil Hughes was run out for nought after sharp work by Martin Guptill to leave Australia reeling on 10/2. Captain George Bailey and Matthew Wade steadied the innings with a third-wicket partnership of 64 and Bailey scored 55 off 91 balls before he was bowled by spinner Nathan McCullum. Adam Voges made a breezy 71 off 76 balls, including seven fours, but he became McClenaghan's third victim when he mistimed a full toss straight to Brendon McCullum at short extra cover. Experienced New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori completed miserly figures of non ...
Australia vs New Zealand, Edgbaston New Zealand (possible) 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Luke Ronchi (wk), 3 Kane Williamson, 4 Ross Taylor, 5 James Franklin, 6 Brendon McCullum (capt), 7 Colin Munro / Grant Elliott, 8 Nathan McCullum, 9 Tim Southee, 10 Kyle Mills, 11 Mitchell McClenaghan. Australia (possible) 1 Shane Watson, 2 David Warner, 3 Phillip Hughes, 4 George Bailey (capt), 5 Adam Voges, 6 Mitchell Marsh / Glenn Maxwell, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 James Faulkner, 9 Mitchell Johnson, 10 Mitchell Starc / Xavier Doherty, 11 Clint McKay. This is another Do or Die match. If Australia lose there chances of making it is very slim. But if they win, they will be back in the mix. For New Zealand, winning will put them in a good position and they should qualify if they win. Daniel Vettori and Micheal Clarke will not play in this game. Both teams will try and win the trans-tasman game!
New Zealand held on for a dramatic one-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in their Group A match at the Champions Trophy on Sunday. The Kiwis finished on 139 for 9 with 13 overs to spare after dismissing Sri Lanka for 138 in 37.5 overs. Despite the low run chase, New Zealand collapsed to 49 for 4 and then 80 for 6. Brothers Brendan and Nathan McCullum moved their team to 115 before Brendan McCullum (18) was bowled by Lasith Malinga, who finished with 4 for 34. Malinga also trapped Nathan McCullum lbw for 32 and Kyle Mills was bizarrely run out after Thisara Perera aimed at one end and hit the stumps at the other to make it 134 for 9. Tim Southee (13 not out) and Mitchell McClenaghan (1 not out) clinched victory for New Zealand with a suitably chaotic end. McClenaghan dived to make his ground for a second run and Sri Lanka wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara fumbled as he broke the stumps, but an eventual wide signal made the run-out attempt immaterial. Earlier, Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews won the toss and opted ...
CADRIFF: New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka by one wicket in a dramatic Champions Trophy group A match in Cardiff on Sunday. The Black Caps messed up a simple chase of Sri Lanka's 138 all out and were reduced to 122-8, before the last-wicket pair of Tim Southee and Mitchell McClenaghan saw them through in the 37th over. eft-arm seamer McClenaghan set up the victory with 4-43 after Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat, but Malinga stole the thunder with 4-34 that almost secured his team an improbable victory. The dramatic win helped New Zealand end a six-match losing streak against the Sri Lankans and claim full points in their first match of the eight-nation tournament. New Zealand were cruising at 48-1 when Sri Lanka hit back with three wickets for one run in the space of eight deliveries. Malinga triggered the collapse with a full toss that crashed into Kane Williamson's pads. Umpire Rod Tucker upheld an appeal for leg-before. Ross Taylor was leg-before to spinner Rangana Herath for zero, before Martin ...
New Zealand bowled and fielded brilliantly, went to lunch with not a care and then came back to find the bottom falling out of its innings in its ICC Champions Trophy match against Sri Lanka at Cardiff on Sunday (June 9). Needing just 139 to win, it squeaked home with just a wicket to spare. The climax was farcical, with Tillakaratne Dilshan bowling a wide down the leg side even as Mitchell McClenaghan and Tim Southee hared back and forth with two needed for the win. Sri Lanka had the outstanding batting and bowling performers in the match – Kumar Sangakkara and Lasith Malinga – but still finished on the losing side after a batting display that was marked by poor shot selection. There was little hint of the drama to come when New Zealand went to lunch at 26 for 1, having taken just 37.5 overs to bowl Sri Lanka out. Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson made steady progress after lunch before an extraordinary error of judgment gave Sri Lanka a route back into the game. Malinga bowled a slow loopy full tos ...
Buttler Blitz Helps England Avoid Whitewash England 287-6 (Bell 82, Buttler 47no) beat New Zealand 253 (Taylor 71) by 34 runs Third One-Day International, Trent Bridge A brilliant innings from Jos Buttler late on in the England innings helped them avoid a series whitewash against New Zealand at Trent Bridge last night. England had been going nowhere at the halfway point in their innings at 97 for two and had only 211 with just four overs to go. However, Eoin Morgan and, in particular, Buttler launched an assault of ferocious proportions. They plundered 76 runs from the final four overs and finished up on 287 for six with Buttler unbeaten on 49 off just 16 balls. Morgan began things by depositing the previously parsimonious Mitchell McClenaghan for six in the 47th over, but Buttler took over from then on and kept up the pressure following Morgan’s departure, run out for 49. In the 48th over, bowled by Kyle Mills, Buttler showcased all of his party tricks. The first ball was heaved over mid-wicket, prompt ...

England v New Zealand, 3rd NatWest ODI, Trent Bridge McClenaghan's strikes hurt England! Mitchell McClenaghan put New Zealand in charge at the halfway stage of the England innings at Trent Bridge. McClenaghan, the left-arm seamer, claimed the wickets of Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott to keep the England innings in check and maintain New Zealand's hopes of securing a 3-0 series whitewash. England's 97 for 2 at the halfway stage is their lowest 25-over score in the series.

ICC Champions Trophy 2013 Team Preview – New Zealand::: (NZ men, Possible XI and NZ fixtures) Over the last few tears, Kyle Mills has been the spearhead of the New Zealand Bowling attack in ODI’s.

2013 Champions Trophy: Meet the teams New Zealand Champions in 2000, the Black Caps are also the dark horses in a group, where the other three teams are superior, at least on paper. Luke Ronchi should have an interesting time, if he gets to play against his previous employers- Australia on June 12. Some of the names in this team, have the skill and talent to match the best in the world. But what matters is what they register under the ‘matchs won’ column in the points table. Squad: Brendon McCullum (captain), Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Grant Elliott, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Mitchell McClenaghan, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Daniel Vettori, Kane Williamson.
Martin Guptill's fluent unbeaten 103 led New Zealand to a comfortable five-wicket victory over England in the first ODI at Lord's on Friday. Guptill shared a third-wicket partnership of 120 with Ross Taylor which laid the platform for the touring side to chase down their target of 228 with 3.1 overs to spare. England, who completed a 2-0 win over New Zealand in the test series on Tuesday, started well after being put into bat, Alastair Cook and Ian Bell sharing a smooth opening partnership of 45. But Bell, on 18, edged Tim Southee through to wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi and the captain fell in identical fashion for 30. Jonathan Trott and Joe Root repaired the damage with a third-wicket stand of 67 before England lost three wickets in quick succession. Root was bowled for 30 trying to reverse sweep spinner Nathan McCullum. Trott, on 37, was caught at deep mid-wicket off McCullum and Eoin Morgan top-edged Mitchell McClenaghan to Ronchi to leave the hosts reeling at 126 for five. Chris Woakes made 36 and Tim Bre ...
All-Round New Zealand Outclass England New Zealand 231-5 (Guptill 103no) beat England 227-9 (Southee 3-37) by 5 wickets First One-Day International, Lord’s A Martin Guptill century helped New Zealand recover from the loss of two wickets in the first over of their run chase to overhaul England’s modest total of 227 for nine with more than three overs to spare at Lord’s yesterday. England had been poor with the bat as Mitchell McClenaghan and Kyle Mills bowled tidy opening spells before Tim Southee removed both openers, Alastair Cook and Ian Bell, in quick succession. They then continued to lose wickets in clusters throughout their innings and the anticipated late charge from Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler never materialised, leaving Chris Woakes and Tim Bresnan to take the total past 200. Cook and Bell did add 45 in little more than 10 overs after they had been asked to bat by New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum. Joe Root and Jonathan Trott then looked to have laid a decent platform with a cautious thi ...
Alastair Cook and Ian Bell are at the crease. Alastair Cook is on strike. Mitchell McClenaghan will open the attack
Alistair Cook praises New Zealand duo England were ambushed by 'wounded soldier' Martin Guptill as New Zealand won the first one-day international by three wickets. Alastair Cook's tourists appeared to be on course for an opening victory at several stages, but in the end Guptill and New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum (69no) were triumphant and jubilant at Seddon Park. England failed to capitalise as they had hoped, put in to bat first, on three individual half-centuries from Ian Bell (64), Jonathan Trott (68) and Joe Root (56). Instead, Mitchell McClenaghan - who was unable to complete his final over because of a series-ending side strain - finished with four for 56 as England ran out of steam on 258 all out. ~SportsMan
LOL! Bell, on 26 when he was put down, pulled a short-pitch delivery from Andrew Ellis over the head of a leaping Mitchell McClenaghan on the boundary, with a young man sitting just inside the picket fence taking a splendid catch away to his left without leaving his seat. Black Caps management are currently on their way to find the kid and recruit him to be the new fielding coach.

McCullum, bowlers help NZ level series Hamilton, February 12 Captain Brendon McCullum led the way with the bat while his bowlers produced a disciplined display to beat England by 55 runs in the second Twenty20 international at Seddon Park on Tuesday and level the three-match series. McCullum had anchored New Zealand's innings to power them to 192 for six with 74 runs from 38 balls as he plundered England's attack for six boundaries and five sixes. Mitchell McClenaghan, who took two wickets in successive balls in the second over, Trent Boult and Ian Butler then put the power- packed England batting line-up under constant pressure with aggressive pace bowling. Butler finished with two for nine from four overs, while McClenaghan had two for 24. James Franklin mopped up the tail to finish with 4-15 off 3.3 overs. Jos Buttler produced a cameo of 54 but received little help as England were dismissed for 137 in 19.3 overs. England had won the first match at Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday by 40 runs, which was ...
Mitchell McClenaghan's name is longer than Zaheer Khan can throw
James Franklin struck an unbeaten 47 to guide New Zealand to a remarkable one-wicket victory over South Africa in the Momentum One-Day Series at Boland Park in Paarl on Saturday.   Franklin, with support from Kyle Mills (26) and Nathan McCullum (24), saw the Black Caps home when Franklin struck Ryan McLaren through the covers for the winning runs. McLaren gave the home side a sniff of a chance when he bowled Mills with 22 runs still needed for victory, but Franklin and Mitchell McClenaghan defied the South African attack.   Rob Nicol (4), Martin Guptill (0) and Kane Williamson (5) were not able to offer any resistance to the South African attack. But a 78-ball 45 from BJ Watling, as well as Franklin's knock, gave the visitors belief for the rest of the series, as the visitors were struggling on 140 for eight and looked out of the match.   McLaren was the pick of the South African bowlers as he finished with 4-46 from 8.4 overs. Lonwabo Tsotsobe and Rory Kleinveldt, each picked up two wickets while Dale ...

McClenaghan added to Test squad New Zealand Cricket (NZC) today confirmed that fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan will remain in South Africa for the upcoming Test series.
Host of debuts for new-look teams South Africa will begin their home season in the field after New Zealand decided to bat first in the opening Twenty20 at Kingsmead. Both sides included a number of new or recalled faces as they start afresh after disappointing World Twenty20 campaigns earlier in the season. Between the two teams there are seven players earning Twenty20 debuts. For New Zealand batsman Colin Munro, allrounders Corey Anderson and Jimmy Neesham and paceman Mitchell McClenaghan, who took three wickets in the warm-up match, get their first caps. South Africa have included Henry Davids to open, Quinton de Kock to keep wicket and the quick bowler Chris Morris. Faf du Plessis is captaining South Africa after AB de Villiers withdrew from the series in order to rest and has a strong hand of quick bowlers available with Dale Steyn, Rory Kleinveldt and Ryan McLaren alongside Morris. New Zealand enter this tour in something verging on disarray following the poorly handled demotion of Ross Taylor in fav ...
